Mothers are allowed to set up boundaries to steward their families.
Set up boundaries
In an episode of A Life You Love with host Renee Evans, Havilah Cunnington tells moms that it’s okay to set up boundaries. Today’s culture has taught us to be more active in our social platforms. It has taught us to respond to every email, text messages, chats and calls. But that’s not what God wants us to always do.
“In our culture we learn that every phone call deserves a phone call and every text deserves a text. What’s happened now is that the world is now dictating where our time is going because of what they are wanting from us.”
God wants us to have authority over our time and over our lives. If we continue to let other people dictate our everyday lives, we end up having little to no time to do what really matters the most. God wants us to be a good stewards of what He has blessed us with.
“Instead of feeling bad about saying ‘no’ or not responding, I want you to say to yourself, ‘I have chosen to be more obedient to God.’ Because it comes down to obedience. That’s it, I’ve chosen to be more obedient to God by stewarding my time. Period.”
Havilah then encouraged mothers to not be sorry for prioritizing our family. It’s okay to say no and set up boundaries.
“You can set up boundaries that have more of a filter… You’ll start to set your boundaries up to where people can’t quite get to you and have the access.”
“You’re not sorry, you are stewarding the most precious thing that God can give you and that’s a human life. And so, we are allowed.”
